Back from Stumptown!

The Stumptown Comics Fest was a blast…I got lots of great comics and introduced some new folks to my stuff as well. This time I had help at my table, thanks to the able and agreeable Kenny H., an old chum who offered to join me on the trip down from Seattle and who is a gifted drawing-maker in his own right – we’ll see if he gets bitten by the comics bug. I enjoyed cool new stuff by Corinne Mucha and Erika Moen, among others.

I returned home with a few extra copies of my print-on-demand books, so I’ve decided to put ‘em on sale – I’ve dropped the price a few bucks, and also getting them directly from me instead of from Lulu.com cuts the shipping down a bit too. Anyway, visit my comics store if you’re interested!

New Comics Ready To Go!
Posted in News March 28th, 2009 by Greg

Smaller #1 and Flung #4 (the first issue of Flung in many a moon) are both printed and ready to go. I’ll have them with me at the Stumptown Comics Fest (table #101) – if you’re there, stop by and say hi!

They’re also up and available for order on my comics store – grab them and some older Flung issues or minicomics! (Original copies of Flung #1 and #2 and most of the minis are just available until I run out, so get them while they’re around.) Thanks!

MarsBar, Sat., 3/14: double the Greg
Posted in News March 3rd, 2009 by Greg

The 2nd of two shows featuring your slacking comics pal Greg is coming up on Saturday, March 14th. I’ll be playing in two of the three bands playing that night at the marsBar at 609 Eastlake Ave. E., in Seattle. Should be a swell time, as both of the bands are great. I can say that because I am not the frontperson for either. That way it’s not egotistical. Anyway, Mountain Kids Fantasy opens the night, with Malkah Duprix on guitar, me on drums, and then we’ll have a few guest musicians sit in and stir it up a bit. Mighty Shiny is up next, also with me on drums. The third band is Hijack Maria, which I am not a member of. The show starts at 9 (probably fairly sharp) and cover is $6. If you check it out and have been meaning to pick up some comics, I’ll have a few with me, so just ask…and we’ll also have copies of the Mighty Shiny CD. Whee!

Below is the fine show poster put together by Rhonda Pelikan, singer/guitarist for band #2:

Music with Greg, if you’re in Seattle
Posted in News February 23rd, 2009 by Greg

I play in Mighty Shiny and we have a show at the Comet Tavern in Seattle on Saturday, 2/28. It’s an early show and we go on right at 5:00, followed by a secret guest band and then H is for Hellgate. Come check it out if you’re around and your early Saturday evening is free. Also, old pal and occasional comicbook character Mike will be sitting in for a song!

Please Stay Tuned
Posted in News February 7th, 2009 by Greg

No new comics for awhile, I realize…I’ve been distracted by 1) music (two bands I’m in have a bunch of gigs coming up – visit mightyshiny.net and mountainkidsfantasy.com for the details); and 2) laying out and printing Flung #4 and Smaller #1 (unless I change my mind on the name) in time for the Stumptown Comics Fest. So: more blog comics coming shortly, and other doings doing also!

Just A Brief Commercial Interruption
Posted in News December 7th, 2008 by Greg

Whee! Comics!

While I’m finishing up more stories, I just wanted to remind my thousands of satisfied online readers that I have actual physical paper-type comics available for your non-ephemeral reading pleasure, including a couple of book collections. Book collections are neat and fit conveniently onto “bookshelves”. Impress your friends and order some comics!

All the deets (that’s “details” for you older folks) are available at flung.net/comics.

Thanks for reading, and more online comics are on their way.

Come see me at the Olympia Comics Fest!
Posted in News May 31st, 2008 by Greg

I will be tabling at the Olympia Comics Fest on Saturday, June 7th! It looks like it’ll be fun – come by and say HI if you’re in the area! I’ll have minis, books and more at my table. Plus there’s, well, me! It runs from noon – 5 at The Vault, in downtown Olympia – here’s a map, and more info is on the fest site. Hope to see you there!

Later in the summer I’ll be at the Portland Zine Symposium, which is the weekend of August 23/24 at Portland State University. If all goes according to plan I’ll have a new issue of Flung debuting as well, sort of a follow-up to #3 and the Personal Ad dates stories.

See you Saturday!

Stumptown!
Posted in News April 23rd, 2008 by Greg

Hi, all! I’ll have a table at the Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend! This is my first time at a show since I got back into comics so I’m really looking forward to the experience and checking out what everybody’s got. I’ll have a bunch of stuff with me, including four new (and cheap) minis – covers below. Come by and say hi if you’re going – I’ll be at table 48!

It’s odd, the songs that get stuck in your head
Posted in News March 27th, 2008 by Greg

When I woke up this morning this song was in my head. I have no idea why:

I first saw this on one of the TV Carnage DVDs. Which all rule, or own, or something along those lines. Go buy all his stuff!

Also, Google “Jan Terri” to learn where this came from, if you’re curious.

New book collection, and Stumptown!
Posted in News March 23rd, 2008 by Greg

I’ve finished my other collection of past Flung material – Flung #1 – #3 collects the first three Flung issues, along with 30 pages of extra material, in a shiny new package. In Flung #1, marvel and/or cringe as I obsess over whether to ask out a library clerk, meet an online pen pal in the real world, suffer the indignity of ducking into the adult section of a video store, and learn what really goes on in my roommate’s dreams. Flung #2 takes a sordid trip up to Canada with bored cruise ship musicians, and I get hit up for drugs due to my fondness for snack items. Flung #3 is a three-episode epic of personal ad dates gone awry, with a bonus battle between a prize kitty and a squirrel. Plus 30 pages of extra stuff: Read a cut Flung segment, a newly-drawn story, a date story translated into French, and more! 134 pages, 7.44″ x 9.68″, full-color wrap-around cover, B&W interior.

Click here for previews, ordering info, and the list of stuff I currently have available. If you like. Oh, and here’s the full wrap-around cover.

I’m also going to be at the Stumptown Comics Fest this year for the first time. I’ll have a table and will have the new book collections, old Flung issues, and a new for-the-fest mini sampling recent stuff. Say hi if you’re there! And if anyone has pointers for maximizing the experience or wants to carpool from Seattle, let me know! (email “gfling” at this domain).
